The only things that you are allowed to bring in are some water bottles and light snacks for your children.

Legoland Water Park

The operating hours for the water park is from 10:30 a.m. to 6:30 p.m. Some of the water features are water slides, wave pool, tube slides, and a lazy river. The water area has different sections for kids of various ages to enjoy.

If you are in for getting soaked, this is the place to be. With a giant structure in the middle, you are guaranteed to filled with soak heaven.

If your child is under 6, they do have a junior driving school next to the section, so that they can participate in that as well. The younger ones have a smaller one way path to work with, so you would expect less collisions.
